DescriptionBill Woggon - Katy Keene Pin-Up Parade #5, page 5 Original Art (Archie, 1958). When the Russians launched the first satellite, Sputnik, on October 4th, 1957, they created a world-wide sensation. The world's first artificial satellite was approximately the size of a basketball, weighed 183 pounds, and took about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path. The successful launch ushered in new political, military, technological, scientific -- and fashion -- developments. America's young fashion designers heeded a clarion call, and designed these fabulous space wear duds for Katy Keene to debut, only a year later, for this "Katy Keene Sputacular" pin-up page! The image area is 12.5" x 18", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "Now here's a connection to the Space Age that's not your everyday "Popular Science" entry! For my collection, I've always had a rule: The odder the better. And what could be better than the pin-up queen of comics paying tribute to the world's first artificial satellite.".
